Consumers can setup their devices to sync within minutes, automatically syncing and backing up content. Snap a photo with a phone and it instantly syncs to the cloud. Download a song at home and listen to it on the go. Access and download documents on any device with a browser.
"Snap Sync is a simple, consumer-friendly cloud service for anywhere access to your information," said Jiren Parikh, president and CEO at Snap MyLife, Inc. "With secure cloud storage and automatic syncing of all your data, Snap Sync makes it easy to manage your digital life. And, because everything is automatic, it makes for an incredibly simple and reliable backup tool. Just set it and forget it."

There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
